The wet felt join is a great join for a feltable yarn – such as most animal fibers. It’s best used when joining the same color, as when joining a new skein of the same color, or when there is a knot in your yarn that needs to be removed. The wet felt join is my favorite join to use in these situations, as it has very little effect on the final look of the project, and is highly unlikely to come undone. Plus, no ends to weave it!
Here’s a video showing how to do the wet felt join, followed by written instructions with photos. *Or find an ad free version of this video HERE.
First, fray the ends of both pieces of yarn for about 2 inches.
Overlap the frayed ends and wrap them around each other.
Wet the overlapped section of yarn. I does not have to be soaked, just damp all the way through.
Rub the join quickly between your palms, or over taught fabric to create heat and friction. Continue until join is felted together.
Ta-da!! Now create away with your joined yarn!
